CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE OF ATLANTA DEDICATES CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION LAB TO DELTA COMMUNITY CREDIT UNION
Children’s at Egleston Honors Georgia’s Largest Credit Union and CEO Rick Foley
ATLANTA – (Dec. 27, 2012) –Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) and Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), recently recognized Delta Community Credit Union, Georgia’s largest credit union, for the credit union’s ongoing support by naming Egleston Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab for the credit union and its CEO Rick Foley. Sharon Robinson, who manages the CMN program at CHOA, also presented a plaque to Foley recognizing him for his tireless fundraising efforts during his nine year tenure.
Foley said that the credit should go to the credit union’s staff and thanked them for their generous support of charitable organizations like CMN. “We have more than 700 employees at Delta Community and over the years, our employees have volunteered their personal time and funds to support charitable organizations across metro Atlanta,” explains Foley. “We are honored that our donations helped to establish this special cardiac lab for children. It is my hope that our employees will continue to be committed to supporting organizations like CHOA and CMN for many years to come.”
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, Delta Community stays deeply rooted in the communities it serves by being an active participant and source of support through programs that benefit children both physically and financially. Foley, who is retiring at the end of 2012, has been Delta Community’s president and CEO since 2003. During that time, Delta Community has raised more than $1.6 million for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hospitals through community-wide fundraisers and generous contributions from board members, employees and members. Delta Community has had a long-standing relationship with CHOA and CMN through the nationwide program, Credit Unions for Kids.

Delta Community is a state-chartered credit union organized under the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, and its deposit accounts are federally insured through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
